This was early on in my application timeline, the interview was finished (so I thought) and the partners had answered my questions. I was about to get up when one of them asked “before you go , tell us why we should choose you instead of the many other applicants we’ve just interviewed”. I was really caught off guard – after a very long pause I ended up mumbling something about me being entrepreneurial and watched as my chances of a TC went out the window.

A runner up would be: “What energises you?”.
